earth there. and i'm a big space geek. i love that. we'll see you back here tomorrow. "in the arena" starts right now. >>> good evening and welcome. i'm tom foreman. tonight we are getting mixed signals about a possible back room deal on the debt ceiling just hours away from what president obama at least at one point called a deadline for a decision.
